Myrtle Beach National - West Course

  • Overall: - 8.75

As one of two sister courses to the heralded King’s North, West Course at Myrtle Beach National also plays through expansive pine forest with a notable absence of homes and development. It’s just you and nature, on a course that offers plenty of room off the tee and plays into greens that, while open in front, feature several that are sloped heavily from back to front.

For all the room that West Course offers off the tee, it won’t exhaust you with its length. All par fours here play less than 400 yards from the middle sets of tees, while the par five holes play less than 500 yards from the same sets of tees – and offer multiple opportunities to reach in two to boost your scoring chances.

The finishing hole at West Course is a par three – a bit unconventional for the market, but also making for a dramatic finish as you steer clear of the water that runs the entire left-side length of the hole.

Myrtle Beach Golf Insider
  • Ted - Course is in very good shape tee to green. Some of the best kept bunkers in MB. Pace of play was outstanding. Staff always very nice. Not overly difficult course but enough challenges to make it interesting. Good warm up course to start you golf vacation or just a nice place to play if you live here. Holes 15 thru 18 are nice finishing holes. Recommend playing here. - 01/21/2017 - 10

  • Ted - Tee Boxes & Fairways are in excellent shape. Greens have recently aerified but still putted very true & fast. Staff were very friendly & seemed concerned because of the heat. Kept reminding us to drink plenty of fluids. Pace of play was good 4hrs 10mins with foursome & extreme heat - 07/14/2016 - 10

  • David - Opening course of our trip, so quite a gentle start. Not too taxing, nothing stunning but a nice solid course where everything is laid out in front of you. Not bad condition either. - 06/29/2016 - 8

  • David - OK course. decent condition. Nothing to write home about. Decent value for money all round. - 06/27/2016 - 8

  • Mark - Enjoyed playing this course, it is open and fairly easy with no water. Good starting course to get warmed up. Should have played the back tees or hit 3-wood of the tee as there were many dogleg holes where a 240yd drive means your through the fairway. Greens were decent and rolled well but had bare spots. We were early for our tee time but were hurried to play with the other twosome who was even earlier than us. I would play this again as a warm-up course, but the King's North course is a much more challenging layout but not in any better condition than the West course. - 06/24/2016 - 9
